Alanna has lived in Townsville for five years, and is currently studying her Certificate IV in Vet Nursing. Her affection for animals grew from having a menagerie of pets as a kid! As an adult, she moved to Australia from Ireland and worked at wildlife parks, influencing her to choose to work with animals as a full time career. Beginning as a Greencross Vets as an intern through the internship program and went on to complete a Certificate II in Animals Studies. Alanna delights in the opportunity to work with different species, and experiencing something new every day. She also continues as to offer care to wildlife animals and will always have a special affection for Australian birds.
I graduated from JCU in 2015 and spent my first three years in a large, busy mixed practice here in Townsville before joining the professional and passionate Greencross Vets team in late 2018.
I grew up in Southern W.A on a large sheep and cattle property where I always looked forward to the vet visits to check on our livestock and numerous pets. I have spent many years in various industries before finally following my passion to become a veterinarian later in life.
I have grown up with pets in my life for as long as I can remember, and I endeavour to treat every patient as if my own. In my spare time I can be found walking my Afghan Hounds, fishing on the Great Barrier Reef or travelling with my family. I have two lovely and exceptionally spoilt Afghan Hounds, Mr Teddy and Miss Evie.
In 2015, I started my Certificate II in Animal Studies and completed it in September 2016. Once I have finished my schooling, I aim to start my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing to become a fully qualified vet nurse. I started working at Greencross Vets part-time after completing my Certificate II. I enjoy caring for animals and love getting to play with puppies, kittens and save the world one animal at a time! I have lived in Townsville my whole life and love spending time playing sport and exploring the outdoors; while also enjoying spending time with my little fur-baby Flash (dog) and my large fur-baby Nutmeg (horse).
After spending lots of time as a part of the Greencross Vets team, I have discovered a passion for puppy preschool, emergencies, surgery and customer service as well as a newfound interest in cats which I was never expecting! As I continue my career, I want to not only develop my small animal nursing skills, but also branch out into large animals and wildlife somewhere in the future!
